📉 Andrew’s Market replace

It is a new part of Zima Crimson the place we synthesize and share Andrew’s ideas on the NFT and crypto markets. You may observe these ideas and musings reside on Twitter.

Is the underside in?

Macro/crypto market billionaire thought leadooooor Arthur Hayes says that the crypto market costs have bottomed out. However have they?

Effectively, two issues are true:

  1. The market is 100% managed by the Fed’s actions

  2. The Fed is doing two of probably the most bearish issues it may possibly do that are:

    • elevating charges

    • persevering with with quantitative tightening

With that being mentioned, NFTs are holding up surprisingly properly. Whereas they’re clearly being devalued in USD phrases, many have held regular and even elevated in base crypto phrases (ETH, SOL, and many others.) It is a nice time to be loading up on crypto that you’re bullish on long-term.

🔮 PfP’s and Collectibles

Goblintown mewns

After the Terra collapse, Crypto Twitter formally introduced that we’ve all collectively entered into “Goblin City” (we’re undecided who precisely coined the time period however we’re going to offer credit score to Sassal bc that’s the primary place we heard it.)

The markets going to goblintown basically means that they will be down 80%+ akin to previous bear markets – therefore going straight to goblintown.

Out of the goblintown meme, goblintown.wtf started minting. It had no highway map and an nameless crew. All anybody knew was that it was CC0 and free to mint 1 + fuel.

Because of the venture’s timing, execution, and strong good contracts, many speculated that it was being led by NFT veterans. Rumors started to flow into about its founders as being anybody from Beeple to Yuga Labs.

The meme caught and Goblin City has already achieved an unimaginable 30K+ ETH in quantity.
